Firewood Is Needed
For Winter of '41-'42

prices for the winter of 1941-42;
K. W. Graeber, extension forester
of N. C. State college, suggests
to farmers that they prepare now

Even if labor is available to mine
sufficient quantities of coal for
domestic purpose it is questionable
whether transportation facilities
will be available, this situation ' is
bound to create a greater demand

not suited for lumber or other
commercial purposes. The earlier

Despite the advantages of in
creased demand for wood, the ex
tension specialist offered a note
of warning. "The slogan should be
'Don't Strip the Land,' "he said.
"A good . scutting plan would be :
Cut the poorer species, such as
scarlet oak, blackjack oak, sour
wood, black gum, hornbeam, etc.
Cut crippled, crowded, or diseased
trees of any species. Make use
of tree tops left from recent saw
